New management leadership
Senior Network Administrator (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON26 May 2017
Don’t have clear goals and can’t prioritize their workload effectively, meaning that projects and tasks get completed in the wrong order.

The leaders are afraid to recognize their own failures, They do not lead by example and having transparency with any team if you do something wrong or make a bad decision can go a long way.
Pros
Excellent pension plan and benefits
Cons

Administration (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON3 December 2016
I am a former employee and I really enjoyed working at Bruyère Continuing Care! The most special things are the employees and the organizational culture. It really feels like you are part of a big family, you feel like home!

Salaries and benefits are excellent, they encourage work-life balance and employee growth. I wouldn't hesitate about going back!!

Do not apply here for work.
RPN (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON26 July 2016
This organization treats their employees like garbage. Occupational health treats injured employees like criminals and force workers back to the job before they are ready. No support is given to new staff. They are constantly hiring new grads. .. red flag right there. Staff turnover is very high. I highly recommend you stay clear of this place.
Pros
Nothing

not a good place to be unless you are RN or administration
allied health professional (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON31 March 2016
If you are not a nurse or a manager, do not expect to get anywhere within the organization. There are no opportunities for advancement for allied health professionals. Vacation approval process is terrible (quota of 1 staff per discipline off at a time per site) unless you have an administrative position. Low vacation quota makes it difficult for casuals to have enough hours to stay at Bruyere which leads to constant casual turnover. If you are applying to a casual position, be sure to have a backup position elsewhere.

There have recently been major changes to reporting structure which make it more difficult to have employee concerns heard at the senior leadership level. All managers and directors with very few exceptions have nursing backgrounds therefore allied health concerns are not taken seriously. Many departments have been affected by recent cuts which leads to great workloads. Overtime hours are not approved for pay but you are expected to get the work done.
Pros
gym cost only 2$ per pay
Cons
everything else

Bruyere Continuing Care
RPN (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON31 March 2016
Bruyere Continuing Care is not a casual friendly place on all units. Some units the staff (not all) are not very helpful to casual employees. Though on other units the staff are extremely helpful and willing to help you grow. The management team is great and very willing to help nurses grow and are willing to direct you to further education opportunities.
Pros
Great Wage
Cons

Great team of nurses to work with! You'll end up connecting with your colleagues and forming life-long friendships
